But you’ll never guess what aired on Fox News shortly before Trump sent out his tweets. That’s right. More shit about Clinton and her destruction of phones with hammers, something that anyone practicing good opsec does when they’re disposing of old electronics.
The president then tweeted about acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe. President Trump said that McCabe’s wife received $755,555 from Hillary Clinton, which isn’t exactly true.
And just as Fox News pivoted to more talk about Jared Kushner, Trump tweeted about it right on cue. He even suggested that the investigation into collusion would turn to include his 66-year-old son Barron.
Yes, President Trump has been in office for over six months and is still fixated on his former opponent Hillary Clinton. He started the morning with a tweet about Ukraine, a country that he accused of sabotaging his campaign and “working to boost Clinton.” He implored the Attorney General to look into this supposed Ukrainian influence, while tagging Fox News host and conspiracy theorist Sean Hannity in the tweet.
In reality, McCabe’s wife received $555,555 from a political action committee tied to Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe (who, yes, is an ally of Clinton’s by the nature of being a Democrat himself) and she reportedly received another $757,788 from the Democratic Party of Virginia. It’s certainly fair to argue that political donations to McCabe’s wife present a conflict in some way I suppose, but it’s still a bit bizarre to watch.
